Iron Bridge

This bridge appears to have been the location for several outdoor scenes of the Robert Downey, Jr. / Robert Duvall film "The Judge" from 2014.

Sorting Out Names
Posted August 30, 2011, by Nathan Holth

Sorry, the video I posted here has a misleading title. This bridge is locally known as the Iron Bridge. The video I added shows flood waters assaulting the Iron Bridge. The reason the video is titled Bridge of Flowers is because what you can't see in the video is a concrete arch bridge called Bridge of Flowers which is completely submerged under the floodwaters. For clarity, I have added the Bridge of Flowers to the website as well, since it was not listed before.
